Sight words are also words that they memorize by just seeing them and remembering their pronunciation, such as I, see, and, me, my, to, a like, play, the, she, he. My son's teacher said once they know these words they will begin reading books in which most of the sentences contain at least 2 or more of these words -in conjunction with the names of colors which he has already learned. This is their method in how to start teaching them to read.

There is a difference between sight words and high frequency words. Sight words are those that can only be learnt by remembering them visually e.g."the". High frequency words are those that comprise 8o% of words that are read. Some of these words can be sounded.
